BJ'S BLOG 03/04/14 "Hanging with your Ex?"
Hey there, Rock-A-Holics! Let’s hang out! It doesn’t have to be weird or awkward…but let’s face it: we can probably guarantee that it WILL be weird and awkward. Maybe we shouldn’t tell anyone else about this.
On second thought, maybe we should talk about this in Group Therapy.
Kim has asked for some advice, but I’ll just come out and say this upfront: I think what she really wants is for someone to clear her conscience. I’m throwing my hands up and walking away from this one, because I’m definitely in the “not okay with it” camp here.
So, Kim’s boyfriend is out of the country on work, and will continue to be for another month. The boyfriend had been gone for an entire week before Kim decided to spend “7 or 8 hours” with her ex, last Saturday night. The current boyfriend doesn’t like the ex-boyfriend very much, because he thinks the ex is still in love with Kim.
Kim says the ex is just a good friend. Sure, they dated for FOUR YEARS, but they’re just buddies now! I guess that explains why she didn’t tell her boyfriend that she spent time with this guy. In fact, she didn’t just “not tell him”…she lied about it when he asked her how she spent her weekend.
I think this case is pretty much open-and-shut for me. If Kim has nothing to hide, and the ex isn’t a threat to her current relationship…then why didn’t she just tell her boyfriend the truth?
Am I overreacting? Let’s hear your thoughts, good people!
